Could be the gas engine cutting in and out, since that's about the speed where it will go into EV "stealth mode." There is a slight tug each time the engine starts back up. If you had a tachometer...

MPG drop is to be expected when you switch from Low Rolling Resistance tires like the OEM, to non-LRR tires like the Alenza. Mine dropped about 3 MPG going to the Yokohama Parada Spec-X (great tires...

I bet it IS the 12V battery. Make sure it's connected tight and the terminals are clean. If the weather is cold, the 12V battery can run down easily. I've had mine die by forgetting to turn off a map...

The ScanGauge has a hybrid mode, so it turns off when you turn the key off, and stays on while driving whether the engine runs or not. I placed it right on top of the steering column, so it's just...
